MSW and B.S. Psychology
I am the School Social Worker for Mt. Pleasant Elementary, Mt. Pleasant Middle, and Mt. Pleasant High schools. This is my third year with Cabarrus County schools. I have lived in North Carolina for over 30 years. I received both my B.S. in Psychology and Masters in Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I hope all of our students have a successful school year. However, I realize sometimes things come up that can make it difficult for students and parents to put education first. I am here to help if there is a barrier to your child being as successful as he/she can be in school. Below are some examples of reasons a student may be referred to the school social worker.
· Family is going through a crisis
· Attendance problems
· Financial assistance
· Mental health or behavior concerns
· To improve communication between home and school
· Chronic health issues of a student or family member
· Victim of abuse or neglect
· Referrals to community resources needed
Students can be referred to the school social worker by teachers, counselors, administrators, parents or self. Please contact me if there are any ways I can assist your child and family. I look forward to a great school year!
